Herbs are one of my favorite things to plant. I have several pots, each filled with an herb along with an annual flower or two. Of course the plants are functional, but they are also beautiful: from the fuzz of sage, the shiny leaves of basil, or the sweet little lavender flowers, herbs are a surprisingly lovely addition to the garden. I absolutely adore being able to go to my patio, pinch off some basil, and add it into whatever I'm making. My new favorite is adding a generous amount of mint along with one or two basil leaves to my water. It's so refreshing!
Do you plant herbs? What is your favorite way to use them?
